Dominic is from Honeydew and describes himself as an entertainer. “As clichéd as it sounds, it sums up who I am and what I believe in,” he explains.
“I’m definitely a people’s person and I enjoy meeting people and hearing their story and sharing mine.”
Dom’s mom is a former High Court prosecutor, “so academia was always a part of my life,” he says, but after only six months of studying towards B.Com degree in Management Science at the University of Stellenbosch in 2011, he knew academia wasn’t for him.
It was that experience and a chance encounter with a successful former Idol that persuaded Dom he was meant for a career as an entertainer. “I was fortunate enough to meet Graeme Watkins working at a restaurant last year and even more fortunately I’ve had the chance to get to know him as a musician and a friend,” Dom recounts.
“I would definitely have to say he has taught me what it takes to be not only a good musician, but the ultimate professional.”
